Relatively good quality for the price, good location, friendly staff. I booked three beds a month earlier, yet when we arrived, we were placed in separate rooms. It was the major problem that I had with this establishment.

We stayed for 3 nights in a private double room (number 4!). Room was clean and tidy with a balcony, double bed, bed side tables and wardrobe. The balcony was great but very noisy when the windows were opened due to the crossroads outside - that can't really be helped and didn't bother us. Might be worth considering if a... More

Very good location. The only problem was the bathroom. If someone opens a sink or another shower he hot water stop. Good beds and very clean. People are lovely. The kitchen is very good but there was rotten food on the refrigerator.

The bathroom with the toilets is extremely small and dark. All stalls ran out of toilet paper one night we were there and there was no way to get more. Luckily I... More

Cheap and cheerful. I must say the road was extremely loud but we did pick the room with the balcony. perfect location, walkable everywhere, in fact the bus tours stopped a mere 5 minute walk away. Staff were friendly. No noise from within the hostel. We used the Aero bus from the airport (£5 each) which stopped at Placa du... More

Good place, clean, with all the helpful elements, good equipment like free computers, printers, photocopy, etc. The location is very cool because is near from " Gaudí La Pedrera´s house" and Paseo de Gracia that is the most fancy and popular avenue in Barcelona. The zone is secure and the street outisde is clean. The hostal prices are cheap.

Staying in Gracia

Neighborhood Profile
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the center, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theater that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
